Hank Williams 3*
Pops Concert Venue
Sauget, IL
3-21-12

Hank played the last show of his tour last night in Sauget, IL which is literally 2 minutes outside of St. Louis, MO. Pops is a cool venue. Its been open since the early 80's. I have yet to see a bad show there. The sound is great.

There was not any opening acts. Hank played from 8:15 p.m until about 11:45 p.m.*

Hank came out and sounded great. The crowd was intense for a Hank 3 show, a few pits and a few crowd surfers. Also a few fights. Its hard not to have a few fights at a Hank 3 show. Country Music Rednecks, Metal Heads, Punks, Stoners, etc, Hank 3 draws about as diverse of a crowd as any act out there. Mix that with alcohol and sooner or later there will be idiots starting shit. They played an extremely long country set which was I what I made the drive for. Everyone sounded great, especially Andy Gibson who plays the slide/steel guitar.*

I had leave after Tennessee Driver due to one the ladies I was with getting plastered to the point she could hardly walk. Lol it was still a good time!!! I had a friend who texted me about what I missed.

I'm glad to see another Hank3 fan on here!!! He seriously is the best live performer I have seen. Who else will go out and perform for 3 and a half hours each night at tiny ass venues? I'm not sure if you're correct on him doing Dopesmoker for 30 minutes. When I saw him, he did about 5 minutes of Dopesmoker, then went into Holy Mountain, so it was about a 10 or 12 minute jam. He also covered Earthride as well. The last part of the set was Cattle Callin, which is his fucked up version of speed metal.

I saw him last week, and that's how it was here as well.

Thanks man. I got it off Ebay. Glad they had a 5x. Its hard to find good fitting metal shirts when you are 6'3 275lbs

Going to have to go ahead and disagree about Pop's having good sound. Certainly better than the shithole known as Fubar, but concerts I've seen there sound has ranged from shit to decent.

I've seen Down there 4x, Anthrax, Hank 3, Danzig, 5FDP/Shadows Fall/God Forbid, Sevendust in the last 5 years, all of those shows sounded good. Sometimes up in the balcony it isn't loud enough, but thats my only complaint.

Me and you both. Did the same thing at the Halloween show with 5FDP, Hatebreed and AtR at Family Arena.

I just bought a ticket to see Death Angel at Fubar. It can't be that much worse than Pop's, can it?

Sabaton is playing at the Firebird next month. Have either of you guys been there?

In the St. Louis area I've only been to Family Arena, Pops, The Pageant, Verizon Wireless Amphitheater and Scott Trade Center. To me, all of them are okay sounding. I'd say The Pageant sounds not as good as the others.
